- Tom Hanks penned a lengthy tribute to his makeup artist in the New York Times. And appropriately, not to his hair stylist.
- Commuters in Baltimore hoping to listen to NPR were accidentally treated to The Howard Stern Show thanks to defective satellite radios. That puts them in an elite class: people who have actually listened to Howard Stern since January.
- President Bush says the National Anthem should be sung in English because he feels that people who want to be citizens of this country ought to learn the language. Immigrants respond: You first.
- Tom Cruise wants to hire a Beatles tribute band to play at his wedding. The guys pretending to be the Beatles can’t wait to perform for people pretending to be in love.
- 50 Cent thinks that Oprah only “caters to older white women.” Producers argue No, she caters to gay men too.
Sure last week’s silent birth was pleasant, but things just keep getting better for Suri Cruise.
While dad Tom Cruise is on his European tour promoting Mission Impossible III, Suri’s just chillin’ in her crib collecting gifts. Check out this massive teddy bear dad picked up for her the other day. And this one a fan gave him in Rome. And how about that shopping spree for baby clothes dad took instead going to that press conference. Yup Suri is one hooked up baby. But the real reason she’s having such a killer week, is that she’s on vacation. While Dad would have probably loved to tote Suri from premiere to press conference like he did with when she was still in vitro, because she’s only 10 days old, he didn’t make her go with him! So Suri’s got the whole week off. Meanwhile, Mom says enjoy it while it lasts.
You have to give credit to Rethink Breast Cancer for thinking outside the box. Or above the box, if you want to get technical.
In order to raise awareness and promote the launch of their Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign in Canada, they launched the website Check Out My Breasts, an interactive site where women can learn more about checking themselves for breast cancer. The smoking-hot spokesmodel offers tips and advice when you click on certain areas of her breasts– a titillating feature that resulted in me learning more about the subject than I ever thought I would. And I’m sure I’m not alone.
So nice work Rethink. And in all seriousness, everybody should check out this SFW (but only with an explanation that the topless lady on your screen is there for educational purposes) site and make a donation. It’s for a good cause.
Thanks to reader Coopster 1 for alerting us to the interesting facial similarity of Curb Your Enthusiasm’s hilariously neurotic Larry David and celebrated inventor of the vaccine that cures Polio, Dr. Jonas Salk:
Sure, Salk cured a life-threatening disease, giving hope to millions – but Larry gave us Seinfeld.
Lately, posters for the upcoming Silent Hill movie have been subject to vandalism, photoshop contests and lurid public desiccation. So we wanted to join in on the fun. We put 8 celebrity lips on the poor mouth-less girl from the movie. Guess which lips belong to which stars after the jump.

This video, submitted by garbnzgh, is exactly why we created the Drop It section. A government-sponsored anti-drug video that truly has it all: ironic Whitney Houston appearance from back in her halcyon pre-crack days, heavy-handed “danger of drugs” imagery, lots of trumpets, headbands, and the 80′s answer to all the world’s problems: pop stars singing a benefit anthem. Pull up a chair, light up a doob, and bask in all the nostalgic glory.
The weekly feature previously known as “The Friday Five”, in which we invite guests and readers to shuffle their iPods and truthfully share with us the first five resulting songs. This week, our guest shuffler is Sarah “Ultragrrrl” Lewitinn, who happens to be something of an iPod expert, seeing as how she has her own record label, contributes to SPIN Magazine, was voted (along with co-Tart of Pleasure Karen) one of NYC’s best party DJs, and published a book called “The Pocket DJ”. That’s quite a musical resume, with lots of pressure to live up to – so let’s see what she’s got:
1. “Down Again” – Foreign Islands
2. “Track 01″ – Goot (demo)
3. “You Are the Generation Who Bought More Shoes and You Get What You Deserve” – Johnny Boy
4. “Interlude” – My Chemical Romance
5. “Flesh and Bone” – Alien Ant Farm
Damn, I was kinda hoping for a random Dave Matthews song to pop up. Anyway, we showed you ours – now show us yours in the comments!
Curious about whether or not Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros, the two stars of Lost arrested for drunk driving, will be killed off the show? Find out after the jump.
Let me start out by saying that I haven’t thought about the Teletubbies in years (since college, to be exact, when drinking in excess and watching Teletubby videos was oddly entertaining.) But even though they’re not as omnipresent as they were in the late 90′s, I still found shooting them in the head to be quite enjoyable in this Teletubbies Mercy Killing Game. Give it a go. I’m sure you will too.
